Dental Restoration


If you have damaged or missing teeth, our dental restoration services can bring your smile back to life! Our expert dentists have a wide range of options available to repair teeth, including fillings, crowns and bridges.

The purpose of restorative dentistry is not only to make your teeth look as natural as possible, but to ensure they can function properly too.

If you have difficulty chewing, eating or speaking due to a broken or damaged tooth, consider one of our many restorative options.

Dental Fillings

When bacteria forms on your teeth and isn’t cleaned properly, it produces an acid that can slowly erode your tooth enamel. This tooth decay is a type of permanent damage that creates a dark pit in the center of the tooth, known commonly as a cavity.

Cavity Filling

To repair a cavity, we’ll clean the decayed tooth and then fill it with a solution to make it look as good as new!

There are several different types of cavity fillings for teeth, including amalgam fillings, composite fillings, metal and ceramic.

Dental Crowns

If your teeth are decayed or damaged, you may need a dental crown. A crown is a tooth-shaped mold that goes on top of the original tooth – kind of like a hat for your teeth. The purpose of a crown is to provide the aesthetic and functionality of a regular tooth when the tooth enamel no longer can.

First, our dentists will take X-rays to determine the extent of the decay/damage and to create an action plan. Then, they’ll decide whether you need any initial procedures done to reduce the risk of infection and to prepare the tooth for a crown.

If necessary, the tooth will be prepared to ensure the fit of the crown. The permanent crown will then be fitted to the tooth.

Types of Dental Crowns

Crowns come from many different materials, with all-porcelain crowns and all-resin crowns being the most common.

Zirconia is used in addition to another type of material called EMax. Aesthetically, they blend in very well with adjacent teeth. Others will be unable to tell that a restoration has been placed in the area.

Dental Bridges

With a missing tooth, you have a couple of options to replace it. One of the more popular solutions is a dental bridge, which provides a replacement for missing teeth while properly maintaining the shape of your bite.

A dental bridge is a replacement for your tooth or teeth with dental crowns on either side, providing a “bridge” that prevents your teeth from shifting around the natural gap in your mouth.

Types of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are most commonly made from porcelain or composite resins. There are also several types of dental bridges to choose from, including:

  • Traditional bridges -

    The most common type of bridge, with a fake tooth bonded to a dental crown (“anchor tooth”) on either side to form a complete bridge.

  • Cantilever bridges -

    Similar to a traditional bridge, but with just one total anchor tooth attached to the replacement tooth.

  • Implant supported bridges -

    Similar to traditional bridges, but are anchored by dental implants instead of crowns, allowing them to fill a gap of multiple teeth easily.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small posts, often made from aluminum, that can replace missing tooth roots to anchor crowns or bridges to your jaw. Implants are surgically implanted onto the jaw by the periodontist.
